About Me


  1. I don't really think this is anything to do with the NHS but this seems to be where the Care Home funding issues are. I am sorry this is long-winded but am hoping it saves you having to ask questions. My mother has been cared for at home for many years by me and by carers. She is 98 and has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's for seven years. It is not getting any better as you may guess. After one fall of many caused a broken ankle last year she ended up first in our local hospital, then in a Rehabilitation Unit, then in an interim stay in a care home for assessment and re-enabling a

  5. good afternoon I'm new on here and am hoping someone can give me some advice and tell me what to expect. i have received a claim form today from county court business centre relating to a debt originally with the funding corporation but assigned to cabot. the issue date is 17 jan and the amount being claimed for is £10200 + costs of £454.50 (court fee ) and £100 (legal representatives costs ). the claim is in joint names for myself and my now ex wife. when we were together we got a car financed through tfc in 2007. when we separated and divorced it was agreed
  6. Hi All. I recently purchased a Ford Focus from Stoneacre using finance from The Funding Corporation. After 1 day of collection, a whole host of issues appeared, which were as follows: 1.) ABS/Traction Control/Handbrake lights would randomly start flashing on dashboard. When they did, the car would become very jerky and not drive properly (much like kangarooing) - when on the motorway at 70mph and this happened the car would be extremely dangerous, braking on it's own and hopping around for want of a better explanation. If a car was behind you it looked to them like you'd braked!
  7. A few days ago a vitally important judgment was released concerning (once again) the matter of Liability Order 'costs'. This particular case was an appeal and was heard in the High Court but unlike in the recent case of the Reverend Nicolson, this particular local authority (East Northamptonshire District Council) had prepared a schedule of standardised costs of the type encouraged by Judge Andrews in the Reverend's case (paragraph 46). The claimant; Edward Williams represented himself and his appeal concerned (amongst other points) the following: One: That the summons serv
  8. Hi - I have a car which is financed by TFC (the worst HP company ever, their staff are so arrogant). I just wanted to find out if anyone has managed to come to a reduce payment agreement with them. I have been trying for the last 2 1/2 years to have my monthly installments reduced, reason being is I have had to reduce my work hours for health reasons so have lost +/-£300/month. I have written, complained, phoned just about done flik-flaks in their offices and they are having none of it. Their response is we do not consider your situation to be a material change i
  9. Hey Caggers, I am after some advise ref a vehicle that we purchased from ACF Car Finance in December 2011. Since we have had the car there appears to have been an lot of things that have actually gone wrong with the car ranging from a new clutch, new gear box, new suspension, new central locking, failed coil pack, misfiring cylinders and knackered suspension to list the ones that come to mind as I write this post. Since we had had the car, we have followed the recommended service arrangement and had a full service every 12 months and really have looked after the car. With having s
  10. Dear all, I had an interview for a team manager position in a learning difficulties service charity organization on the 9th of March 2015. The employer called me later in the day and offered me the position which i accepted. The employer sent me the conditional job letter offer. The HR manager called and emailed me, before they received the references, saying that "unfortunately the job position was withdrawn because the funding to support the job was not more available." If it can be useful , i am adding this information- I am aware that my current manager knows the new emplo
  11. Hi all, My friend is on JSA and is wanting to train as a Phlebotomist, there is a company that trains you and it says this> Q: Can I get funding for your courses? Phlebotomy Training Services is a DWP approved training provider and so we do get a large number of students who receive full or partial funding for our training courses. We can provide you with an information pack which explains further details about the courses and how they can increase your chances of employment. http://www.phlebotomytraining.co.uk/index.php/faq Is this true? Would the DWP really fun
  12. Having sorted out son in laws debts thanks to this site and taken control of the situation, I am looking to reclaim any ppi he might have had on a series of loans he had when trying to support his parents whilst his mother was terminally ill and his Dad a full time carer. had a credit report and as well as Welcome - a nightmare to deal with and currently on back burner - came across The funding corporation and a loan from August 2004 til October 2008 - 50 months at £81 - looks like no defaults on it but suspect some form of ppi. Read a few old threads on vario
  13. Hi guys, Wondered if anyone has any info on this. I was offered door work last year through a friend but I lacked an SIA and I asked Ingeus about training for an SIA and they never got back to me. Fast forward to recently, well I've been offered work by my friend again this year but again I lack an SIA. However another guy who was on a course with me told me the job centre paid for his SIA (Or helped him fund it can't remember). Does anyone have any info about this? It's pretty much guaranteed work for me if I could get hold of a licence.
  14. I'm after some advice Back in june 2008 I purchased a car from ACF financed by TFC by way of a credit agreement linked to a Bill Of Sale. A week ago I received a statement of account from TFC showing the account still had a balance of £1300 to pay (I thought the agreement was totally paid up and the car was owned outright by me). On the statement was lots of charges for late payments and 'admin' charges. When I added them up, the charges are more than the outstanding balance by about £400! TFC have now sent me a notice of default sums, and my question is how d
  15. Hi there. My son and his partner are joint claiming Jobseeker's Allowance. I hope someone who has Jobcentre experience can help me out. We have a two part question - first part is relating to appointment scheduling, and the second is about funding for training. I'll stick to the question about scheduling in this post. Their normal signing day is on a Tuesday in the a.m. However, at their last appointment 2 weeks ago, their Jobcentre adviser told them that he was going to be absent from their next scheduled fortnightly appointment due to a training course he had to attend. So, he said
  16. Hi everyone, I'm new here and just looking for some advice I got a car on finance from approved car finance/ the funding corporation with my ex partner back in 2004 and I was paying all the monthly payments for about a year until I got laid off and I rang them and told them this and they still wanted me to pay, I started paying roughly £135 a week when started back work after being out of work for 2 months, when me and my ex split up in 2006 I lost my job and got 3 months behind with my payments, during this time I was staying with a friend, then out of
  17. Hi, I am the loving mother of a lively 2 year old. I was diagnosed with autism in October last year. My autism, which incorporates dyslexia, makes it hard for me to trawl through past posts on sites like this and try and work out if anything is relevant for me, so please don't think me lazy in not having done so. Also, I would be very grateful of any simple, direct answers that are easy for me to digest (though I know I'm not very good at being brief myself!!) My problem is that I am in desperate need of nursery funding, but social services have, I feel, unjustly washed their hand
  18. I work for a County Council and am a paid up member of Unison. I recently had cause to speak to a parent about an issue and they identified themselves as working for Unison during ‘discussions’ about a serious complaint they had. They made several threats to us, using their standing, to have us investigated for apparently wasting money and for discrimination. This is without first establishing the facts that prove they are in fact wrong on every count. We are all facing severe funding cuts and as such are expecting a large number of redundancies and I take exception with the fact tha
  19. My Daughter was born with Polands Syndrome - she has had 2 operations 1) to build a muscle cavity and 2) to place a breast implant within the cavity, after surgery her chest has never been symetrical, and after fighting for a second opinion from another hospital we were told that the implant has completely turned ( teardrop implant) and the Dr was flabbergasted at the way she has been treated, so we had to apply for funding again to put right and replace the implant, 5 months later we have been refused ...can anyone help or advise the next root of action please xx
  20. Loans designed for borrowers who have 'experienced one-off event resulting in adverse credit record', says lender Sub-prime mortgages, widely blamed as the cause of the financial crisis, have begun to re-emerge with a new lender unveiling a range of loans for borrowers with poor credit histories. Magellan Homeloans will offer mortgages of up to £400,000 to people who have had county court judgments, individual voluntary arrangements (IVA) or even bankruptcy orders against their names. But borrowers will be charged interest rates starting at 8.55% compared to current "best buy" rates of as
  21. I need to do GCSE English and had a meeting last week with disability support. There are a few issues with what was said: - Not being allowed to walk out if I have sensory overload, which can be painful. They won't allow me to use a traffic light system and I have to tell someone. I can't talk during sensory overload if the overload if noise. (my response is to put my hands over my ears and walk off) If I need the toilet, I can just walk out. - They won't give me 1-1. I've had this issue before. They have told me that I've got to learn to read by myself. I am sight impaired. It's not t
  22. My daughter currently resides in a supported living placement funded by housing benefit and gets full IB/DLA high care/low mobility, the placement is breaking down and she's dreadfully unhappy, something with more structure was recommended by social worker and this would have to be residential care which actually will suit her Autistic Spectrum Disorder. What would happen to her benefits, I was told she would keep her mobility allowance and another £28 a week for essentials like clothes the rest going towards the care home, or do social services totally fund the care package and any benefits w
  23. Last year I went to the doctors because of pain in my low abdomen on my left side. I was eventually referred to a consultant surgeon who instantly diagnosed an inguinal hernia. He said I needed surgery and went about setting this up. I heard back from his secretary saying they'd done their end and were now referring it to the funding body. Then this week I get a call from my doctor telling me that they will not be operating because the NHS doesn't pay for such operations any more. Apparently it's not affecting my life enough. The hernia means I cannot run and so I asked my doc "so you're
  24. Hi everyone I'm new to all this and am just starting the road to reclaiming several lots of PPI! My first one is with The Funding Corporation. Unfortunately we are only going by the paper work we have as we can't remember the details. Basically we took out a loan with TFC for £10,000 plus PPI for £2170, plus interest at 6.9 totaling the loan to £14,505 of which £2587 is PPI. Husband had a full time fab job with full sick pay etc etc. He also had life insurance. We would never have knowingly added £2587 to a loan without thinking it was compulsory. It appears to me this is 'fr
  25. hi all, I would like to start a complaint Re Barclays home insurance legal funding. I applied to them to take on a legal matter and after much deliberation they accepted the claim. The only problem was that Barclays only offered £1500 to help with the claim, while £1500 is better than nothing it is still not enough to cover all of my costs. Especially when Barclays policy handbook states that a level of funding is available upto £50k. Whilst I do not need £50k I need a significantly higher level of funding for my claim which has now gone to appeal. I relied on Barclays st
